Samsung Malaysia recently teased the water resistance feature of the Galaxy A (2017) Series, and the event invitation has the same water reference, which makes us believe that this series will be water resistant.

 

The current A series launched a year ago, so this is perfect timing for the new generation.

ASUS 'reorganizing its loss-making' tablet business

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Mobile Devices, Tablets & Phones | Posted: Dec 29, 2016 8:15 am

ASUS has been releasing weird and at times very wonderful tablets over the years, but the company hasn't been making profits on them, so starting in the first half of 2016 the company began restructuring its tablet business.

 

asus-reorganizing-loss-making-tablet-business_01

 

DigiTimes reports: "Asustek started reorganizing its tablet business in the first half of 2016 and has greatly reduced the number of its new tablet projects as well as tablet shipments in 2016. Since Asustek still has a few hundred R&D and sales staff in its tablet department, Asustek has been trying to relocate them to new businesses such as virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR) and smartphone and the process is expected to be completed by the end of first-half 2017".

 

This leads me to be wondering what ASUS will do about tablets at CES 2017 next week, and whether we might see a shift away from slates by ASUS.

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Mobile Devices, Tablets & Phones | Posted: Dec 27, 2016 8:35 pm

The fresh details on Huawei's next-gen Kirin 970 processor have arrived, with Huawei baking it on the new 10nm process with 8 CPU cores at up to 3GHz each. There will be two quad-core processors inside, with an ARM Cortex-A73 and ARM Cortex-A53.

The company only just recently unveiled the Kirin 960 chip, but the Kirin 970 will bump up from to 3GHz clocks on the CPU cores, up from 1.8-2.4GHz on Kirin 960. According to the rumors, Huawei will be asking TSMC to manufacturer their Kirin 970 processors in Taiwan.

 

As for when Huawei will launch a smartphone with its next-gen Kirin 970 chip inside, we should expect it to launch with the Mate 10 - which could be very soon indeed.

Google Pixel freezes for minutes at a time, even for me

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Mobile Devices, Tablets & Phones | Posted: Dec 27, 2016 8:35 am

Google might be spending tens of millions of dollars on advertising for its new Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones, but people are experiencing issues all over the place - including me. Even after AUD$1249 outright, to say I'm mad at the situation of my Pixel malfunctioning like this being disappointing, would be an understatement.

 

google-pixel-freezes-minutes-time-even_06

 

In the last week my Pixel has been really quite bad, matching up with reports online that Pixel owners have been having their phone freeze, and you can't do anything with it - and it takes up to 60 seconds before the phone starts working, very randomly. The only way to get out of it is to hard reset Pixel by pressing the power and volume down buttons at the same time, and holding them down for 10 seconds.

 

Not only that, but I've been noticing glitches with the camera and the fingerprint sensor not recognizing my fingerprint. A few weeks ago I was sitting in the cinema watching Arrival and at the end of the movie, I went to unlock my Pixel with my fingerprint - which was rejected, and so was my 4-digit security code. I couldn't get into my Pixel at all, and had to hard reset and wipe the entire smartphone and start again.
